Subject: Refreshingly readable and politically incorrect
Refreshingly readable and politically incorrect group of folktales in which Jack kills evil giants,steals from thieves and gives to the poor,saves damsels in distress,overcomes adversity,gets the girl,and lives happily everafter.Childrens opera at its finest.
